Pet Travel Question: Cat Litter for Long Flights?

Name: Leigh Ann

I will be moving back to America from China and will be bringing my cat with me. While on the long flight, do I need to provide litter for my cat? If so, in China, you cannot find disposable litter boxes. Do you have another suggestion?

Thank you for your help.

Hi Leigh Ann,

That's a great (and frequently asked) question. We do not recommend litter in the travel crate—this would probably make more of a mess than it's worth. Rather, we suggest placing something absorbent in the bottom of the crate, such as an old towel or some shredded newspaper.

Hope this helps! Please contact us if you have more questions about moving a cat to the United States or if you'd like a free quote for our services. Good luck with everything!

HiI moved from Toronto to Odense in Denmark with my cat.I put him in his carrier at 3pm and he came out around 1 pm the next day. My family stop the car so I could walk him, but he didn't want to do anything. He had acces to water and food on the way in his carrier. Soon as I got to my end destination he used the litter boks I had my family set up for him. He used that soon as he felt comfortable at the new place he was at.Cats can hold it for a long time.
